On August 22, the season closed with a concert by Norwegian-born Stockholm-based singer-songwriter Ane Brun.
With seven successful albums and several awards to her name, Brun has toured across the world and recorded a song with Peter Gabriel. Her first albums, influenced by Joni Mitchell and Kate Bush, were recorded to an acoustic guitar. Her third album Changing of the Seasons, produced by Valgeir Sigurðsson, who has collaborated with Bjork, Sigur Rós and CocoRosie, brought Brun international acclaim. On her latest album When I’m Free, recorded in 2015, Brun’s clever melodies, elegant arrangements and theatrical performance are accompanied by an electronic beat. On August 23, Ane Brun will perform at New Holland Island in Saint Petersburg.
